This BoF is targeted at NREN network specialists and engineers who are building optical network infrastructures.  As a new generation of new ZR+ and XR optics become available, this BoF will bring together people who would like to know what can be done with these new generation of pluggables and if this is a new disruptive technology that will change the way we build our networks.



  • Coherent Optics, 400G, 800G, and Beyond. What to expect and the enabling technologies, Stefan Voll, Infinera
  • IP-optical integration with pluggable optics, present and future, Dirk van den Borne, Juniper
  • How new form-factors fits in the evolution of current transport networks, Alberto Bellato, Nokia
  • The impact of new form-factors busting disaggregated optical line systems,  Dejan Bilbija , Ciena
